There are some things that are so uniquely Uruguay. It gets windy so people break out the winter coats. It is summer so people take random vacations and forget that there are patients waiting for lab results.
I went to my doctor today to check my blood before chemo (platelets are a little low but white and red cells are fine). We were hoping the results of the PET would be in to give the green light for chemo Thursday. My doctor called the director of Cudim and asked him what the deal was (in much more polite Spanish). Come to find out, the technician took a vacation, so now the director is handling my case personally. It pays to know doctors in high places. So while I nervously wait for the PET to come in tomorrow, Mom and I are making my balcony beautiful.
And while we are at it, Mom decided to have a little fun with the snap dragons.
